This very rare, pro-Union, Civil War period broadside, 27" x 21", is one of only a small handful known to exist. Printed as an insert to the Philadelphia Daily & Weekly Journal, it is a fantastic example of what is likely one of the earliest paper flags made for wartime patriotism. Spectacular graphics include a large image of George Washington, set within a star-shaped medallion. 34 small stars are distributed within the 5 arms of the large star. This reflects the number of states at the opening of the war (1861-1863). This image is set within the canton of the flag. Encircling the star is the following text, "Philada Evening Journal; Carr and Elliott Publishs.". "OUR UNION FOREVER" is printed on the diagonal through the stripe field with an interesting striated font. At the top of the broadside, blue text reads, "Philadelphia daily and weekly journal.", and at the bottom, is followed by, "Office, NO. 108 South Third Street.; Daily, 2 Cents per Copy . Weekly, $1 per Annum." The piece has been repaired from the back and still has 1" hole in center folds.
